When:

Hannelore Volckaert

Hannelore’s (Belgium) work as facilitator started by coaching adolescents for over 8 years as a counselor in several settings: she worked in special youth care (residential care, foster care) and as a school counselor. In search for more input in how to really and effectively initiate change, she became a psychotherapist in the solution-oriented cognitive therapy at the Korzybski Institute Bruges. Working solution focused connected immediately and seamlessly to the way she intuitively works with people. Adults and organizations became the scope as Hannelore became the managing director for an organization in adult education for 5 years and as she provided trainings and facilitated processes as a freelance coach and trainer. Becoming fully independent was a way to be able to coach teams and help them communicate, to support and coach individuals and families, train solution focus and fully enjoy life and work. Starting her own coaching and therapy practice is the next step. Last year, together with a colleague, Hannelore wrote a little book about working solution focused with people with autism. Currently, it’s being translated in English. Hannelore’s work is appreciated for her enthusiasm and the ability to really listen to people and to connect with them. Being able to communicate clearly, humorous and to put people at ease, became real strengths in developing trainer-skills and helped people to get the most out of their training, coaching or proces management. 
Hannelore is appreciated for her natural leadership skills, which occur always very appreciative to people.
